Ajmer is a green oasis on the shore of the Ana Sagar.It is a major centre for Muslim pilgrims during the fast of Ramadan. It has some superb early Muslim architecture, a fort overlooking the town and a lively bazaar. Ana Sagar: This is an artificial lake. On its bank is a fine park,the Dault Bagh,containing a series of marble pavilions.It's popular for an evening stroll. There are good views from the hill beside the Dault Bagh. Dargah : At the foot of a barren hill in the old part of town, this is one of India's most important places for Muslim pilgrims.The Dargah is the tomb of a Sufi saint.As you enter the courtyard, a mosque constructed by Akbar is on the right.In an inner court, there is another mosque. Constructed of white marble, it has 11 arches and a Persian inscription running the full length of the building.The saint's tomb is in the centre of the second court. It has a marble dome and the actual tomb inside is surrounded by a silver platform.The tomb attracts hundreds of thousands of pilgrims. Adhai-din-ka-jhonpra:The mosque is a particulary fine piece of architecture with different pillars and the 'arched' screen with minarets is noteworthy. Three km and a steep climb beyond the mosque,the Taragarh,or Star Fort commands an excellent view over the city. Akbar's Palace : This fort was built by Akbar and today houses the Ajmer Museum. Nasiyan Temple : The Red Temple on Prithviraj Marg is a Jain temple.Its double-storey hall contains a series of large,gilt wooden figures from Jain mythology which depict the Jain concept of the ancient world.It's certainly worth a visit.
